Life Groups

Doing Life Together

Collingswood Methodist Church

What is a life group or small group? Why are they important in my life and the life of this church?

People can easily feel a bit disconnected from a church. They can attend worship services, be part of a crowd, but never really get involved, make friends, develop their spiritual gifts or be accountable in a practical way.

Being part of a small group or life group provides the opportunity to fulfil these important elements of a Christian life. Meeting regularly – usually twice a month – with a more intimate group who learn, love, grow and share together builds each of us up. And that then builds up the entire body of the church.

At our church, we have 8 adult small / life groups currently meeting. We are actively working to establish 4 more groups that will begin “doing life together” this September.

If you are an adult (man, woman, single or married) and are interested in a Life Group but have more questions, please e-mail Ellen Wagner or call her at 856-904-4232.
